Menu must-try: Chicken Tikka Masala at Mahesh’s Kitchen. 

Sugar Land takes pride in its cultural diversity. This means there are plenty of options on where to eat no matter what your favorite cuisine is. One of our favorite spots to visit is Mahesh’s Kitchen. This modern Indian restaurant has a stunning dining area with a majestic mural and beautiful woodwork on the ceilings. We recommend you try one of their traditional dishes like the Butter Chicken or Goan Shrimp. If you’re feeling more adventurous, try one of their exquisite fusion dishes like the Mango Habanero Salmon. Toast to a fantastic dining experience with one of their unique cocktails like their Cardamom Mojito or Tamarind-Infused Margarita.
